What is Data Analysis?

Data collected during program evaluation are compiled and analyzed (counting;
number crunching)

Inferences are drawn as to why some results occurred and others did not

Can be very complex depending on your evaluation questions

We will focus on simple things that can be done without expert consultants

Types of Data Analysis: Calculate Weighted Averages
To calculate the weighted average, you tally the number of students that strongly disagree (value
1), disagree (value 2), neither agree or disagree (value 3), agree (value 4) or strongly agree
(value 5).
25 students answered this 5-item survey.
Simply multiply the response value times the number of students answering each option. For the
first item, 3 students strongly disagreed so multiplying 3 times 1 is 3. The number of students
answering disagree was 4 times the value of that response is 8, 6 students answered neither
agree nor disagree with a value of 3 giving us 18 points, 3 students answered agree with a value
of 4 giving the total points of 12, and 9 students answered strongly agree with a value of 5, giving
45 total points.
The next step is to add the total number of points. In this example, adding 3, 8, 18, 12, and 45
gives us 86 points. Divide that by the total number of students, giving you a weighted average of
3.44. A weighted average then takes into account not only the number of students involved, but
also the strength of their belief or opinion.
